The asparagus in our garden is up already (about 2 months early due to the crazy warm weather we had in March). This looks like a good recipe to try with it! Thanks!

This colorful asparagus and radish salad is dressed with a sesame-soy vinaigrette. Pair it with grilled shrimp and rice noodles.

4 servings, scant 1 cup each
Active Time: 15 minutes

INGREDIENTS
1 bunch asparagus, (about 1 pound), trimmed

2-3 dashes Asian red chile sauce, such as sriracha (optional)

Fill a medium bowl with ice water and place by the stove. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket.
Thinly slice asparagus stalks on the diagonal, leaving the tips whole. Place in the steamer basket and steam until tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Transfer the asparagus to the ice water. Drain.
